Another number game: solar panel gain

It’s not entirely impossible I may overdo things.

I calculated effective solar flux to figure how much the change in angle of the sun and cloud cover affected how much power our solar panels could generate on Vingilótë around home.

I calculated sun angle and cloud cover on a monthly average. I used two decades of meteorological data on cloud cover averaged to monthly to do so.

Since I had the data I even did a quick fit check to see if the cloud cover changed or trended in more recent years.

The boat factory manager went crickets on me when I emailed my data: I’m fairly certain they think I’m insane.
